New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

Advanced Mobile Sponsoring TidBITS

Send Article to a Friend

As the calendar pages slowly flip toward April 15th, the dreaded U.S. income tax return date, we'd like to welcome our latest sponsor, Advanced Mobile, a tiny company that makes TaxPro tax planning software for the Newton, not to be confused with tax preparation software that prints forms. Ideally, by using TaxPro throughout the upcoming year (with the update to the 1994 tax rates), you can avoid nasty surprises come tax time next year. For more information on TaxPro and where you can order it, send email to <taxpro@tidbits.com>.
